Rumpelstiltskin rolls into The Stables


To make things easier, we’ll start The Stables round-up this week by telling you that all tickets for Jimeoin on Saturday night are sold-out.

And, if you want to settle back with Loudon Wainright on Thursday, you’ll need to be quick off the mark too, tickets are like an old decrepit rug - thin on the ground!

Witness a soul, rhythm and blues musical extravaganza on Friday when Jake & Elwood Blues perform on stage, backed by the incredible Black Rhino Ban, with all the classics – Its a Man’s World, Sweet Home Chicago, Georgia and loads more...Feel-good safety.

He’s sneaky, he’s cheeky, but we all love Rumpelstiltskin! On Saturday, follow the troubled Miller’s daughter as she tries to outwit rotten Rumpel before the sun rises. Hiccup Theatre spins live music, puppetry and mischevious storytelling into a new version of this classic fairy-tale. Three to seven year olds will love it (show time 11.30am and 2pm).

10cc co-founder Graham Gouldman brings his acoustic performance to The Stables on Sunday.

One of our finest singer-songwriters, he is, but you know as much, and it shows in ticket sales, which are sold out.

Experience one of Ireland’s enduringly popular artists on Monday, as Paul Brady incorporates folk, rock, blues and classic pop styles into a captivating performance.

Celtic traditional music and dance grooves will reign on Tuesday with Scottish band Shoolengifty at the fore.

Expect cartwheels and pole vaulting too. Really.

Martin Turner will be performing some of Wishbone Ash’s most popular works with his current line-up on Wednesday. The founding member of one of Britain’s best-loved rock acts offers a set full of material from the classic era, featuring stage favourites and album tracks.

We should make special mention of local players Motherlode, who have bagged the support slot. With that in mind, take your seats nice and early.
